The mid-term elections are coming up and the talking heads and pundits are expecting a Democratic wave to overwhelm the country. That won’t happen because the country isn’t that stupid. Some pundits, and talking heads are that stupid, but the country isn’t.
Historically the midterm elections are a boon to the party out of power because the party in power is forced to act and not pontificate. The phrase “The Pioneers take the arrows” seems to fit here. When forced to actually govern you have to take a stand and do things. The act of governing requires action and communication; both of those things will be used against a politician in future elections. When forced to take a stand a politician has something that can used against them.
The current situation doesn’t fit into history. President Trump is not a politician, he is a wild card and his own man. He is also rude, crude, and socially unacceptable, but so what, where does he fit when compared to Andrew Jackson, Warren Harding, Harry Truman, John F Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Bill Clinton? I say he falls a little below some and a little above other on the rude, crude and socially unacceptable scale.
President Trump is an outsider and doesn’t represent the status quo, he represents the voter and the tax payer, that’s his problem. The establishment has been in power for quite some time and they haven’t authorized someone like President Trump to be elected. He pissed them all off when he won. He won in spite of the game being fixed against him, that’s not supposed to happen.
It’s possible that the republicans will lose some seats in the mid-terms but not enough to lose the House. One benefit we have thanks to the Obama years is we hold the majority in 32 state legislatures, 33 if you count Nebraska, which has only one house and is allegedly nonpartisan.
This advantage gave us the opportunity to used Gerrymandering to a republican advantage.
Another benefit in the favor of republicans is the legislation that they have passed. President Trump signed 96 bills into law in his first year in office. One in particular will put money back in the hands of every tax payer who earns a salary. The Tax Reform Bill will be a big boost for many republicans running for office. Voting for a bill that allows hard working people to keep the money they earn is a big winner for most voters. No democrats voted for that bill, they won’t campaign on the reasons that they didn’t vote for it but the republicans will. All the republicans running will highlight the actions of the democratic party and their opposition to President Trump.
Appointing Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was a big winner even if it wasn’t a legislative achievement. Many voters will vote for that as a positive thing. Conservative voices on the Supreme Court moves the Court to a more tradition position where it won’t try to legislate by judicial edict.
Another big achievement for the republicans are the roll back of regulations. This is having a big positive impact on business and jobs. The economy is starting to roar, it’s in much better shape than it was in when President Trump took over, these are achievements that people can see and feel.
The talks between North and South Korea seem to be a big diplomatic achievement for the President, as well as his progress in Europe and the Middle East. Apparently he’s not too rude, Crude, or Socially Unacceptable to the rest of the world. Positive talking points for Republican candidates.
The Travel Ban and the Wall are achievements that have not been fully realized but the fight is still active and the potential is there for success.
The republicans have positive issues to fight with, the democrats can only tell us what a dirty rotten bastard President Trump is. Then they can talk about Impeachment.
The Mueller investigation is collapsing so there will be indictments and terminations that include members of the Obama administration not the Trump administration. More details from this failed Ponzi Scheme will made public be election day so that will help the republicans a lot.
Right now we are in early May there are more things for us to achieve, President Trump said we were going to get tired of winning and maybe we will.
We will keep the House; we will get more seats in the Senate, President Trump will campaign for many republican candidates and that will help them not hurt them. The mid-term elections will look good for the country, the republicans and President Trump, but not so good for CNN, CNN will be sad.
President Trump won 2623 counties in 2016, Hillary won 489. There aren’t enough dead people to change the balance in favor of the democrats.
Republican win, and win big.
PS Stormy Daniels and President Trump.
I don’t know this as a fact but I strongly suspect that this is true. Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels were naked in the same bed for a period of time.
Not only that, take your 14 and 15-year-old sexual fantasies, multiply them by your 25 and 30-year-old sexual fantasies, and the shit those two did in that hotel room was at least 5 times dirtier and nastier and hotter than that.
He didn’t drug her, or lie to her or coerce her in any way other than to promise value in the form of cash or merchandise for hot dirty sex.
We know she is a porn star and border line whore and President Trump should be ashamed of himself for doing it, but he almost certainly did SO WHAT!
